Does your research challenge or respond to one of the UAL research strategies? Are you interested in public policy and social design? We want to hear from you!
Present your work as part of a networking event by Social Design Institute x Post-grad community held during RNUAL Block 2
Wednesday 5 February (5pm to 7pm), Blueprint Café High Holborn
CALL FOR PARTICIPANTS
We invite UAL PhD students in social design and design for sustainability whose work engages with the themes of: Living with Environmental Change, Lifelong Health and Wellbeing, Digital Futures, and Community Resilience to showcase their research at a networking event co-organized by the Social Design Institute and Post-grad community, coinciding with RNUAL Block 2 as part of UAL research season 2020.
The four selected students will be asked to bring an object (it can be a poster, a photograph, a work of art or an everyday object) that represents one of the themes and use it as the centre piece of their short talk (5 minutes with 5 minutes Q&A) describing their research from a policy perspective.
The speakers selected for the event will then be invited to come to present in the same format at a prestigious event for academics and policy makers co-organized by the Social Design Institute and PolicyLab at the Cabinet office.
This is a great opportunity to share your work with a wider audience and to meet other PhD students, academics, practitioners and policy makers working to address social challenges through design and creative practice.
HOW TO APPLY
Please send a short summary (max. 200 words) of your proposed presentation and a brief bio and/or artist statement (max. 100 words) to firstname.lastname@example.org Monday, 27 January 2020.
Proposals will be selected based on their relevance to the overall objectives of the event and their potential to highlight the policy relevance of UAL research.
We look forward to hearing from you.
